Ever wonder how to calculate the capacitance of a Shmoopified physics brain? Want to wrap your head around physics using rotational dynamics?
Shmoop’s guide to AP Physics C has you covered.
Our guide is littered with tips for acing the AP Physics C exam. Learn why Maxwell’s equations are good for more than brewing a mean cup of coffee, and decide if Gauss was more magician than man. You’ll also learn a little about Newton and Leibniz. What was up with those guys, anyways?
If you’ve ever dreamed of spending 90 minutes doing nothing but Newtonian Mechanics, or perhaps Electricity and Magnetism is more your style. We’ve got them both...twice.
Physics is not something you can learn overnight. You need to learn the physics concepts and you need to learn the math, but come test day, you will have to know how to put them together to set up and solve problems, because we have plenty of practice drills to work up your physics muscles into shape. You will build up your confidence and intuition simultaneously, but you will also pick up those skills that are just right, like Goldilocks.
The AP Physics C test is sometimes a student's first introduction to mathematical physics. This ain't middle school where a toothpick bridge or a shoebox diorama of the planets will cut it. Nope. You are going to have to crunch some numbers. Many of the problems can be solved with algebra and trigonometry, but in AP Physics C you will also need to do a little calculus. We know that not everyone is an integral whiz, though, so we will try to be extra gentle when the math gets rough.
